One game, that features pre-baked rather than dynamic lighting, and a lot of other last gen tricks. Good looking game, but not exactly next gen.
Drive Club blows it out the water in graphical terms....though that game doesn't currently feature 60fps gameplay. Then again, cut out a few graphical effects, and it easily could. #3.1.4

How do you know Sony's CPU is slower? They've yet to reveal the full details of said chip....they're doing so soon. For all you know, they could have upped the clock on it just like MS did.
As for frame drops, the Battlefield 4 comparison that Digital Foundry did shows that the PS4 version had a more consistantly stable framerate than the Xbox One version - despite pushing 56% higher resolution, ambient occlusion (which was missing from the Xbox Version, but will be ad... #45.2

You know Ryse is running at 30fps right? You know that many, many games this generation will run at 30fps in order to provide enhanced graphical effects wherever possible, right? You realise that Killzone features 60 fps for the multiplayer, right?
You realise that countless games in the current gen ran at 30fps (often dropping below it actually, like GTA 5) and few people gave a crap, right?
60fps is lovely, don't get me wrong, but facts are that the PS4 has a FAR great... #44.1.1

What innovation is there in Kinect 2.0? It's a more advanced version of already existing tech that was never any good for any games other than dancing games and party games....and it was only good for those because you're drunk when you're playing them. Also, the Eytoy came before Kinect on PS2 no less. Motion control in games...sound familiar?

Want to talk innovation? Let's look at games like Flower, Journey, Tokyo Jungle, Rain, Puppeteer etc. Games that... #37.3

Dishonest claptrap from MS. Upscaled is in no way comparable to native resolution. If that was the case, we'd just be upscaling VHS tapes rather than developing first DVD, and then Blu Ray.
Why, then, have they targeted 1080p for a game like Forza? Or even gone as high as 900p for Ryse? Why not just drop the resolution even more to allow even more resources for fancy graphical effects, and then upscale?
Because it doesn't look good, that's why...and MS know it... #33

You are deluded BallsEye. Yes, the Xbox One version has Ambient Occlusion to be added, but it is in no way an Alpha build that was shown. Fact is, the One is harder to develop for, and Dice were no doubt pressed for time. We are very close to release, no way was the PS4 version final, and the One version Alpha.
The resolution has been confirmed, deal with it.
Oh, incidentally, you think a resource heavy feature like ambient occlusion can be added without affecting performan... #1.10.4

@Persian, well, to be fair to the Dutch, they are a little bit more relaxed when it comes to "herbal supplements", if you know what I mean. Probably too baked to realise what they were posting. #1.9.2

The "Resolution War", as you put it, is not about a single game. It's about the most expensive console struggling to run a game as crappy looking as Call of Duty at anything close to the level a console $100 cheaper can.
It's about a next gen console not hitting 1080p in 2013 - and lets face it, the PS4 isn't exactly a mega-powerhouse either, but at least it's doing more than the Xbox One.
It's to do with the ability of the hardware to last 5-8 y... #1.1.10

Don't say "bomb" and "president" around Kinect....they'll send the guys round to put a hurting on ya ;) #51

Neither of the new consoles are out yet....there's no fact about the quality of their online service yet. In fact, considering the rumours of the instability of the One's OS and how it interacts with Xbox Live....I think you're in for a surprise at launch.
Oh, and LOL if you think all the PC version will have over the One version is resolution. Higher quality textures, better framerates, fancier graphical effects.
Remember, the Xbox One can only run Ghosts at 720... #110.1

That's just....dumb. What if you have Linux? What if you got the OS free with a PC build? The quicker Steam OS is a thing the better. The arrogance from some in the games industry as a defence mechanism is getting tiring.
Get the game on PC, don't have to pay £429 on weak hardware and a shitty camera that will do literally nothing for me - crap for games, and crap for UI navigation as a controller is faster.
In a year, when the Kinect free version of the One... #111

@thereapersson, those features can be added back in via software updates. Indeed, Yoshida from Sony has already stated he's heard peoples concerns about that stuff being missing, and has passed it onto the firmware guys. Also, the internal hard drive of the PS4 can be changed, unlike the Xbox external support isn't as essential (though it would still be very nice).

Meanwhile, the rumour is that Xbox One also doesn't allow MP3 playback. It is very much... #1.1.8

So you're the very definition of a contrarian? That's not really a good thing, you know that right?
Things to consider for a new console are cost, specification and the games available for it. If you prefer MS exclusives like Halo, Gears and Forza, it'd be daft to get a PS4 just because it's technologically better.
But, if exclusives don't matter, and like most people 90% of the games you buy are multi-platform, you have to consider getting the console th... #1.1.7

An ambient occlusion will affect the performance of the title even's framerate is already less stable than the PS4 version despite running at 720p. Still a great game, don't get me wrong, but the difference in performance is there for all to see. No magic power of the cloud to make up the difference, no hidden second GPU, just relatively underpowered technology in order to facilitate the inclusion of the crappy Kinect 2.0 camera that does more to benefit advertisers than i... #38

Nintendo fans know what they like, that's all. It sucks that the WiiU isn't doing great, but that doesn't make it a bad console, and it certainly doesn't mean there aren't great games coming for it.
The 3DS was supposed to be dying last year, and now look at it. All it takes is that one or two games to catch the imagination and the WiiU could take off. I do, however, think it needs a price drop around the release of the PS4 and Xbox One....just to make it that b... #17.1

Nintendo aren't really interested in competing in terms of technology....they've stated as such numerous times. I'm not sure I'd really want them to either, we don't need 3 consoles doing the same sort of things.
Then again, they are unpredictable, so who knows? #11.1

All those gamers who keep moaning about the same old tired games on the Xbox and Playstation, that keep moaning about worthless DLC and micro-transactions, that keep whining about wishing for something new to come along, that bemoan the lack of depth of most AAA titles.....I hope you people have bought a WiiU, because if not, you've exposed yourselves as clowns who haven't a clue about what they actually want.

There is no evidence at all to support the theory that Sony had all sorts of restrictive DRM lined up....that was merely wishful thinking by certain Xbox fans who were perplexed at the rumours regarding Microsoft's DRM policy in the run up to their reveal.
Companies register patents they don't use all the time, that in itself is no proof of anything. Both Sony and MS registered numerous patents for biometric systems for their next gen controllers that ultimately ended up not... #7

It's foolish to immediately dismiss all leaks, especially the likes of CBOAT on NeoGaf, due to the vetting process and how they deal with those who cannot in some way back up the claims they make.
A lot of people simply don't understand how the world works when they complain about sources and leaks....they whine and complain about the source being protected, without considering the consequences that many sources would face from their employer, and to their future employment in... #28
